Cabin on the Hill

Going back through my images I dug up this image from my 2006 Fall Colors trip (with Steve Parker) down into the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. This image happens to have been taken between Silverton and Ouray, I believe.

What reminded me about this image was, I was perusing Google+ today and saw someone else’s image of this very same cabin and waterfall, and I remembered that I had that image too. So I dug it out of my archives, took a NEW look at it and began working on it using Lightroom’s 2012 processing and Color Efex Pro 4 (the original image was taken back in October 2006) and I really liked the resulting image! (I recall I wasn’t too happy with these images way back when and thus never really finished them then. Good thing I didn’t throw them away!)

What do you think? What’s your thoughts on this image?

A Few More Images – 2005’s Fall Colors

Digging around my stock of imagery for this year’s portfolio album, I came across some images from 2005’s Fall Colors excursion that I felt deserved to be shared and showcased in this year’s portfolio set.In 2005, Steve Parker and I set off for the San Juan’s in Southwest Colorado, in and around the town of Ridgway. We hit the Last Dollar Road, Roads 5, 7 and 9, the latter of which runs right through Ralph Laurens’ Double-RL ranch–one of the most spectacular places in all of Colorado. We also hit Cimmaron Pass and Owl Creek Pass and the town of Ouray. We hit Sneffels and the Dallas Divide areas during this trip too. In fact, the four images below are from the Dallas Divide and Owl Creek Pass. And as our luck runs, we were extremely fortunate with the weather. More so than in 2007, that’s for sure! So, enjoy.
